Zoya Carter

Hi, you guys! :-)

Today, I've got the last but certainly not least of the Zoya Fall PixieDust Collection to share with you. Carter is a dark purple filled with tons of sparkly bright purple glitters that dry down to a textured matte glitter finish.






This is such a sparkly and glowy polish, not to be missed by all you purple-lovers. :-) Application is quite easy without any issues. The first coat looks to be thin, but the second coat is able to fill in enough. I ended up being happy with the coverage at two coats, so I stopped there and that's what you see in the swatches. You can probably add a third coat if you want total opacity.

Now that I've tried all the colors in this collection, I have to say it's probably my favorite PixieDust collection to date. It's a little hard to pick favorites out of this collection because all the colors are beautiful, but if I had to, I would say my must-haves are Tomoko, Arabella, and Carter. I'd love to know what you think of this collection. What are your favs and which will be making it into your stash?

You can find Carter on Zoya.com for $9 for 0.5 fl oz. If you are new to Zoya, you can get your first two bottles of Zoya for $8 - $9 total and free shipping! More info HERE.

  11. This is definitely my fave Pixie Dust collection thus far, too! And Carter is making me rethink my dislike of purple--it's sooooo pretty! I think I'm torn between Carter and Tomoko for my fave out of the lot.

  15. It is beautiful. I probably won't get it in the first order and the ones I'll definitely buy are Chita and Dhara, maybe Sunshine. Your swatches didn't help me at all because now I have three/four polishes on my wish list instead of just one :D
